She is the bride of whom Alice M. Erle, in "Manners and Customs of New England" speaks as "appearing out" on
the Sunday following her marriage, attired in a peach-colored silk dress and a hat and head-dress trimmed with 16 yards
of white ribbon, while her husband walked by her side in small clothes of white broadcloth. According to the custom
of the time, they sat in the middle of the front gallery, and during the service deliberately arose for inspection,
turning slowly around to exhibit their costumes more completely" quoted from The Spalding Memorial

Notes for EBENEZER GAY:
REVEREND EBENEZER GAY (1718-1796)
Ebenezer Gay, the third minister of the First Congregational Church of Suffield, was born on
May 4, 1718 in Dedham, Mass. His father was a substantial farmer, and his uncle was the famous
minister, Ebenezer Gay of Hingham. Young Ebenezer graduated from Harvard in 1737, where
he took the Hopkins Prize and had a speaking part at Commencement. In June 1740 he
preached for the first time in the Third Church of Dedham and then went on to preach in
neighboring parishes.
 
Gay became a candidate for the pastor at Cohasset and then at Suffield. On November 5,
1741, the church and congregation of Suffield called him, and the ordination was held January
13, 1742, which turned out to be a very snowy day. In spite of this, there was a most
distinguished gathering headed by Uncle Ebenezer who preached the ordination sermon.
 
On July 9, 1742 he married Hannah Angier and on November 14, 1743 he moved into the
house he had built-"The Gay Manse on Main Street. They had no children, but their adopted
black girl Sybil was baptized as the child of Ebenezer and Hannah. There were other black
members in the Gay household in later years, of whom the best known was Ti.
 
Ebenezers sermons reflected a plain kind of preaching and the simplicity of his religion. His
religious sentiments were formed on the gospel; not on human creeds. Attached to no system, and
calling no man master, he repaired directly to the fountain of truth . . . . He was steady in his
principles; but, despising bigotry, he ever manifested an amiable liberality of spirit. He never
was severe to censure, or forward to condemn those of different sentiments. Many of his
sermons have been preserved, including The Work of a Gospel-Minister (New Haven, 1755),
the Sovereignty of God (Hartford, 1767), and Evangelical Preacher (Boston, 1763).
 
This tolerance led to his close relationship with prominent people of various political and
religious convictions of the period. His line-a-day diary for the years 1738-1794 tells of frequent
contact with Rev. Jonathan Edwards (Northampton), Rev. Stephen Williams (Longmeadow), Presidents Clap and
Stiles (Yale), Rev. Eleazar Wheelock (Dartmouth), Rev. Cotton Mather Smith (Sharon), and other political and
military leaders of the day.
 
When he was not traveling to preach in other parishes and visiting family, Gay supervised work
on his farm, keeping slaves as was customary for ministers, magistrates, and tavern keepers, who
were freed by his sons after his death. Gay also found time to tutor students preparing for Yale
College, including his own two sons, one of whom followed his fathers ministry in Suffield so that
between them they served church and community for nearly 100 years. After the death of his first
wife in 1762, Gay married Mary Cushing of Scituate. One of their five children, Mary, married Timothy Swan.
 
After a long and distinguished career, Reverend Ebenezer Gay died on March 7, 1796.
His sermons and diaries have survived, a rich source of 18th century religious and social thought
as practiced in what was then a leading town in New England.

Notes for ASA GAY, SR.:
Asa was a man of some property, He laid out the town of Gaysport, Ohio after purchasing the land from
Jacob Ayers, and named it for himself. He willed to the town, land for the cemetery, and money for a
school/meeting house. In the 1850 census, the value of his property is listed as $10,000. He received 4
land patents in Muskingum County. Refs: Hinshaw's Quaker Gen., Census 1800-1810 Lincoln County,
Maine, 1820 Licking County, Ohio, 1840-1850 Musk County; His will & tombstone; Musk County
history; Rockland, Maine town history. In 1840, Asa has only one child still at home, a male age 10-14,
making him born in the late 1820's. All of Asa's children were born in Maine before they came to Ohio
about 1813-1814. Is this a grandson? The birth dates of Asa & Nancy's first 11 children are from 'Friend's
Records at Vassalborough, Maine, page 78. source: information furnished by Linda Taylor.
 
Notes for NANCY MCKAY:
In 1880, Asa, Jr. said his mother was born in Ireland. There was little Irish immigration before the 1830's.
Even then, they concentrated in the cities with industry to offer for work. The Irish immigrants in the area of
New London or Acworth were, however, Irish born Scots. They left Scotland in the early 1600's settling in
northern Ireland and staying very much to themselves, marrying their own and keeping their own Protestant
Scottish churches. This is most likely Nancy's origin. Her family may have come to Acworth from
Londonderry, New Hampshire or Worcester, Massachusetts. No birth record has been found for her in
New Hampshire. Nancy & Asa's marriage record is in the vital records at Concord, New Hampshire,
submitted by N. Paulding, Acworth Town Clerk, from their official town records, December 2, 1905.
